We had Layla blessed at church on Sunday. She was a bit young but it worked out better for us since my mom is in town, Vaughn's family was having a reunion, Vaguhn's uncle is leaving for Iraq and that was the last family function for him and VAughn's brother Ephriam is leaving on a mission and he spoke at church for his mission farewell. We had a fun weekend. No I'm tired here are some pictures.
Monday I had a doctors appointment. I went in and the doctor said I was dialted to a 2 and still 50% effaced. He told me I had 3 choices; we can induce this week, next week, or do nothing and wait. I chose induce this week! I was just done. So he stripped my membranes one more time and got me on the waiting list at the hospital to come in and get induce. Tuesday morning at 5am we got a call from the hosptial telling us to come in they are ready for us. We got there about 7am and got hooked up to pitocin. Contractions started out slowly and light. I think it was a few hours later and my doctor came and checked me and said I was a 3 and he broke my water. That's when the contractions started getting really strong and close together. I was able to tolerate them for awhile. My mother in law Christie and Vaughn were both by my side reminding me to breath. That got to be too much and I asked for an epdiural. We thought the epidural had slowed things down as we watched the montior but I went from a 4 to a 9 in 2 hours! I felt so relieved and happy when they told me I would be pushing soon. Like and hour later my doctor showed up I pushed like 5 times with in 2 contractions and she was out! Less then 10mins of pushing! They put her on my chest and she was screaming and covered in vernix. She may have been over due but still was covered in the stuff.
Layla Ann's stats born 7-7-09 at 7:08pm. Weighing 8lbs 13oz 19 1/2 inches long. Apgars 8/9 Light brown hair and dark blue eyes.
She is a great baby. Only cries when she's hungry. Breast feeding has been difficult but we are working on it. I'm loving being a mommy. I am walking on air. Well like a zombie walking on air LOL.
Well I am now officially 1 day over due. And I want to kill someone. I'm cranky and frustrated and sore and miserable.....I have a doctors appointment tomorrow morning. We will schedule and induction. I didtn want to do that before but now with how I'm feeling I dont care if they cut her out. I'm just done.
Actually only 3 days left till my due date! Yep pretty much have been trying everything to get this little girl going. I went to the doctor on Monday and I'm still dilated to a 1 and 50% effaced. He stripped my membranes but I haven't noticed anything different. Today I'm eat Labor cookies (ginger snaps with a kick) and Raspberry Leaf tea. Come on Baby! this last weekend I was able to see my birth children. The adoptive mom gave me Taryn's old crib and some clothes. It was so wonderful having a visit with them. I cant get over how beautiful they are. I talk about our visit to my husband non stop poor thing. He's probably like i know I was there! They are so sweet and funny! Here are some pics we got.
